What made you so involved with going organic/natural and changing your lifestyle?
I experienced so many health problems growing up (both physical and mental), and when my health hit rock bottom in college I decided it was time for a big change. I was given so many pills by doctors… and I knew I wouldn’t last living this way, putting all of these harmful substances in my body to mask my symptoms. I also learned about the corruption in our medical system (with the Rockefellers influencing the AMA), GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in our food supply, and what lengths the government goes to in order to stifle the dangers of these toxic, processed foods. I was not going to let myself be taken advantage of, and I knew I had to take action on my own if I wanted to get better. My health became my responsibility so I taught myself all about how/where to buy organic on a budget, what herbs to use if I had specific ailments, and how to survive ‘without the system’ in a sense. I ended up curing my IBS, cystic acne, and severe depression, and I haven’t looked back since. You can read my full story here if you want to know all the ups, downs, and details!
